Apologies and Setting the Record Straight

On April 26th, one of our front page writers wrote this piece about Southern Baptists in Texas and Oklahoma. Having dug into the matter, I think the piece is grossly in error and not to the standards of this site.

In the piece, the writer failed to make clear that there are multiple groups of Baptists in Texas, including both a liberal and a conservative convention. While the liberal convention of the Baptists did vocally oppose a pro-life piece of legislation in Texas, the conservatives in the state were split and did not take a position. Some of the conservatives, however, were persuaded that the law needed to be amended to prevent jailing women who have abortions. Unlike the Georgia fetal heartbeat bill, some Texas conservatives think the language in Texas left the issue in the air. Prominent among them is Jack Graham of Prestonwood Baptist Church.

The dynamics among groups involved are far more complex than conveyed in the original piece and, I believe, give a false impression of the situation. Instead of taking down that piece, I am leaving it in place and appending a link to this piece at the top of it.
